Your professional bank account number
When you start a business in Belgium, you need a business account. This bank account number is listed in the Crossroads Bank for Companies (Kruispuntbank van Ondernemingen, CBC), the official database of the Belgian government. As with all other details of your business in the CBC, you must keep this number up to date. So, are you switching to another bank and getting a new professional bank account number for your business? If so, you must immediately register this change in the CBC. Are you liable to pay VAT too? Then you must also inform the VAT administration, and change your business account number with them.
Tip: For a company, a business account number is mandatory. As a sole proprietor, it's optional. Nevertheless, a business bank account number is recommended, so you not only keep an overview yourself, but you also save the tax authorities a lot of work.
